Day 1 is Done!!

Damian and Fraser working on the bikes in the truck bays before crashing out for the night!
Miramichi Fire set us up at one of their halls for the first night. They even cooked up a huge spaghetti dinner for everyone! Unbelievable hospitality and great people! We had a wicked first day! More posts to come tomorrow.
Police escort into Miramichi, NB. 7pm. Yep, that's rain, lots of it!
Not good!!....125km into the morning. We road gravel for the next 50km! Beautiful place but not such a beautiful road for the skinny tires!

Bird was the first guy to hit the road solo after our police escort from Halifax. Couldn't have been a better guy to have this honour, after all of his hard work over the last couple years for S2S. This is one of my favourite parts of the trip so far!

Minutes before the roll out! Left to right, (back) James, Fraser, Bird, Passas, Al, Damian, Pat, Eric, Cordell, (front) Murray, Terry, and Barry.

The official wheel dip....

James and Evan (with their girls), along with Pat and Eric before the flight from Abbotsford.

Awesome, if you can get through rain and gravel on day one then you're ready for anything.

Nice work guys!
